If you have a really bad year at work, you may think you need to start looking for a new job.  But the paradox is that if you are coming off of an extended bad period, you don’t have the resume fodder or self-confidence to land yourself a new position.

If times are great at work, you have the employment capital, but not the desire to leave.

In a recent webinar, author Tory Johnson recommended that you “abandon the search for the job fairy”, and realize that it is you who create your own destiny.  It sounds to me like the best thing to do is strive everyday to be amazing at the job you have.
